The date your holiday starts determines the relevant rate for your stay.

Our changeover days are Friday and Monday, only.

Short breaks (3-night Friday-Monday weekend) and (4-night Monday-Friday midweek) are bookable in advance for all dates from October to the end of March EXCEPT Bank Holiday weeks.

*During Bank Holiday weeks and the summer half of the year (April to the end if September) advance bookings for short breaks are not possible unless the start date is less than 4 weeks away OR if availability has already been created by earlier bookings.

Price for a fortnight

The second week is reduced by approximately 15%.  If you would like to stay longer do consult us – depending on availability and time of year we will try to come up with something attractive to you and fair to us!

Price for a ten (or eleven) day holiday

This is the best value of all, as long as you are happy not to have a mid-break clean or linen change… We charge the relevant weekly rate plus a flat rate throughout the year of £225 for the extra 3 or 4 nights .

Some hopefully helpful reminders…

Our (approximately) 5% off the current price for all returning guests still applies.

The price current at the time of booking always applies, even if you are booking more than a year ahead. (NB See our T&Cs for our cancellation policy).

Price for all short breaks is calculated at very roughly 70% of the relevant weekly rate.

Short Breaks

October to March inclusive we offer 3 or 4-night short breaks, which can be booked in advance. 3 nights: Fri/Sat/Sun nights. 4 nights: Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs nights. April to September inclusive Short breaks are not normally possible. However, there are two exceptions: 1. If the week in question is still free 4 weeks before the start date short breaks are possible. 2. If a short break gap is created by two weekly books on either side of the gap (one a Monday to Monday week, the other a Friday to Friday week, then that short break thus created is available for booking in advance, as soon as it is created. The price for short breaks, when available, is approximately 70% of the rate for the relevant week, rounded up or down as seems simplest so we’re not dealing in fractions.

*Holiday Cancellation Insurance

We strongly recommend taking out insurance against your having to cancel your booking due to some unforeseen situation arising. If this happens, The full fee is still due (and not refundable if already paid) unless we are able to re-let the dates. We will always try our hardest to do so, possibly at a discounted rate, but cannot guarantee that we will be successful. To avoid the possibility of mutual embarrassment and hardship we strongly advise you consider taking out cancellation insurance unless you are prepared to take the risk. Any insurance firm should be able to provide this. If it would help we can provide information about the Pavey Group UK Holiday Protection Plan (which is a preferential scheme for Premier Cottage guests) or you can download a PDF version yourself – see the link.

Other Information

And after all this we do hope you will enjoy a wonderfully relaxing and hassle free holiday here!
